This New ‘Taco Cleanse’ Is Actually Good For Your Health
Yes, you eat nothing but tacos for 30 days!
Cleanses are big in the health-food sphere right now. Whether it’s souping, juicing or some other diet (does anyone remember the nightmarish Master Cleanse?), it seems like the prevailing conventional wisdom is that your insides are dirty and need to be cleaned with copious amounts of lemon juice and cayenne. But now there’s a new fad called the “taco cleanse,” and for the first time we might actually be able to stick to a diet!
First things first: The taco cleanse is vegan, and that’s part of the reason it’s actually healthy. (Did you really think we were going to advocate for eating tacos al pastor seven nights a week? Sorry to disappoint!) Sticking to a plant-based diet is a great way to get your eating habits in line with your health goals.
The idea for the this tempting diet comes from a cookbook called “The Taco Cleanse: The Tortilla-Based Diet Proven to Change Your Life.” It was published a couple years ago, and has garnered a lot of headlines and some devotees. Of the people who have tried it, the responses have been overwhelmingly positive. Apparently Jennifer Aniston bought the cookbook as soon as she heard about it.
So how does this magical taco-only diet work? Well, it doesn’t claim to necessarily help with weight loss, but it does promise other health benefits such as lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Sure, you’re eating a bunch of tortillas, but you’re stuffing them with all kinds of good-for-you vegetables and plant-based proteins like legumes—likely a big improvement on your current diet.
